We've all been eagerly awaiting the launch of a brand new world-class brewery and distillery down by the beach in South Freo, and thankfully we can finally relax (preferably with a pint) because Running With Thieves is finally open.
Running With Thieves are the brewmasters behind the opening which takes pride of place in the historic Sealanes warehouse site in South Fremantle, directly opposite the beach in true Freo style.
The 1400-square-metre facility will include a retail outlet, restaurant, and 20-metre long bar wrapping around three copper pot stills and brew tanks—giving guests an insight into the brewing process.
Behind the scenes, the full brewery, distillery and packaging line will be pumping out millions of litres of beer on the regular, including eight core beers and a changing monthly seasonal variety, and an exclusive selection of gin, vodka, rum and whiskey.
Patrons wishing to sample some of their alcoholic delights before choosing which to take home can go for one of their beer paddles or gin flights. No matter your preferences, though, it’s safe to say you won’t be short of choices.
Foodwise, they’ve brought in Head Chef Mia Gammon to deliver a Freo-appropriate menu that reflects the incredible local produce available, with bold, balanced flavours as well as some sustainable fermentation and pickling action on the cards. We’re also excited to hear there’ll be plenty of foods that you can hold in one hand, leaving you with one free for drinking. Sounds like we’ll need it tbh.
The new venue is now open for walk-ins only so gather your crew and start planning your drop-in now.
